An afternoon tea and dance entertained supporters at a fundraising event in Nailsea.

The musical tea party was held at St Francis Church to raise money for Mulako Safe Home Zambia and visitors tucked into cakes and refreshments in aid of the cuase.

Elizabeth Rhodes, a retired teacher from Nailsea, and her friend Patricia Sililo set up the charity to provide a feeding station and shelter for orphans in Zambia. The charity has already begun feeding children and work has started to prepare the land for a shelter.

The next fundraising event for the cause is a musical evening at Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club, in West End, on Saturday at 7.30pm. The Harry Browns, Fitzroy and Everton will be performing on the night.

Tickets, priced £5, are available from Nailsea Music Shop, in High Street, or from Elizabeth on 07765 252601.
